My Morning Routine
Have you ever been running late and have been left frazzled the rest of the day? That's the absolute worst. I hate being rushed so I try and wake up an hour to an hour and a half before I need to leave. I love the early morning - it's time for just myself and to set the right intentions for the day. If I have a good morning I will have a good day. If I have a bad morning, well it just get worse (normally).
If this is like you, I'm sure you know the importance of a morning routine. Here's a glimpse of my morning routine.
6:05: My first alarm goes off. I typically hit snooze a few times - I'm terrible at that.
6:15: I actually get up and light stretching to get my body awake.
6:20: Start getting ready (brush teeth, wash face with Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleaner, put in contacts, etc.)
6:25: Start make up - I just got into makeup again (to see my beauty routine, check out my blog post here.)
6:35: Style hair - typically natural waves are a go-to for me, but if I have a meeting or an important event then I'll take an extra 10 minutes to straighten or curl it.
6:45: Pick out an outfit for the day - typically a dress
6:50: Pack my lunch - I've been loving Trader Joe's salads for easy prep.
7:20: Leave for the bus
7:45: Arrive at work and get my day started (officially)
On the weekends I take more time to stretch, read and make a more in-depth breakfast (omelet, smoothies, etc.)
What do you do in the mornings?
